OUTSIDE THE COMFORT ZONE - Things We Don't Want To Do
Most of us have had the experience of tackling some dreaded task
only to come out the other side feeling invigorated, filled with a new sense of confidence and strength.
The funny thing is, most of the time when we do them, we come out on the other side changed
and often wondering what we were so worried about or why it took us so long.
We may even begin to look for other tasks we've been avoiding
so that we can feel the same heady mix of excitement and completion.
Whether we avoid something because it scares us or bores us, or because we think it will force a change we're not ready for,
putting it off only creates obstacles for us.
On the other hand, facing the ask a hand - no matter how onerous - creates flow in our lives and allows us to grow.
The relief is palpable when we stand on the other side, knowing that we did something,
even thought it was hard or we didn't want to do it.
When we cling to our comfort zone, never addressing the things we don't want to face,
we cut ourselves off from flow and growth.
We all have at least one thing in our life that never seems to get done.
Bringing that task to the top of the list, and promising ourselves that we will do it as soon as possible,
is an act that could liberate a tremendous about of energy in our lives.
Whatever it is, we can allow ourselves to be fueled by the promise of the feelings of exhilaration and confidence
that will be the natural result of doing it.
